NYIPLA hosts 92nd annual Dinner in Honor of the Federal Judiciary

So-called “patent prom” brings together outside counsel, inside counsel, judges and more to talk about the issues facing the patent space

For many of us, the social high point of high-school was the prom, so it’s no surprise that the social high point of the year for patent attorneys has been nicknamed “Patent Prom.”

The event, the Dinner in Honor of the Federal Judiciary, is put on by the New York Intellectual Property Law Association (NYIPLA), and is in its 92nd year. “It started in 1922 and has been at the Waldorf Astoria every year since then,” says Anthony Lo Cicero, partner at Amster Rothstein & Ebenstein LLP and president-elect of the NYIPLA. “It’s the largest event the hotel has every year, and, unless there is a Met or Yankee game, it’s the biggest event in town.”
